Package: mysql-client-5.1
Version: 5.1.47-1~bpo50+1
Severity: wishlist


Please move my_print_defaults from mysql-server-5.1 to mysql-client-5.1.

Some people prefer to use the mysql.com binaries (due to the need to
have a special version or just religious reasons :)). Administering such
a system would be more comfortable if one could install the mysql-client-5.1
package and let the mysql.com init script use the Debian client binaries.
Symlinking the mysql.com my_print_defaults to /usr/local/bin works as well
but as it's use full for checking e.g. if the $HOME/.my.cnf is correctly
parsed it does not hurt to declare it as a client binary.
